I've waited my whole life for someone to give me permission to create art, to do the things I wanted to do. Here's the thing: you don't need anyone's permission. Stop waiting for someone to discover you and proclaim your genius and take responsibility for what you've wanted to do all along. You do not need anyone's permission to be you. You don't have any choice: why are you fighting it so hard?
